Nail Trends We Have Our Eye on in 2021January 21, 2021
Mix & MatchWe have many, many moods these days, so a different pattern, print or color on every nail ensures we’re obsessed with our manicure at all times. This look has animal print, smiley faces, a yin yang and more — literally what else could you want from a mani?
Velvet CrushVelour sweatsuits were our favorite thing in the early 2000s, so it’s no surprise that velvet manicures have become our obsession a whole two decades later. Not only are they the perfect winter accessory, but the textured appearance of the polish adds a little extra oomph to a solid nail color.
Muted UndertonesFor a mani that’ll go with any outfit, pick out a range of colors with neutral, muted undertones. This way you can still rock a range of shades while still having a manicure that’s tied together. Feel free to pick colors from the same palette or switch it up with different shades of the rainbow.
Retro DesignsWhether you want to opt for neon colors and geometrical designs or a few wavy swirls, all things groovy are a go in 2021. This trend can be difficult to DIY, but have fun with it.
Naked NailsIf you took the past year to do a polish detox, try stepping things up just a bit in the new year. We’re loving sheer polishes, light pink toppers or just a bit of shine. It’s a barely-there look that’s chic and super simple.
Stickers and Shine
If you haven’t tried out nail stickers yet, now’s the time, especially if DIY nail art isn’t your speciality. A little sticker — like this butterfly — is an easy and foolproof way to spice up any manicure.
